Even if Roy does pan out, you lose all that grit Ott brings as well as his ability to get people off their games. Adding Whitney and Jagr would be good moves if they were a cup contending team but they're not. I look at what they're doing and they could maybe make the playoffs this year but I highly doubt they make any real noise this season, especially having to play us 6 times who will kick the **** out of them now that Ott is out and Whitney, Jagr, and Roy are in.
Signing Jagr helps sell some extra tickets. If he doesn't work out then so what? Trade him at the deadline for a pick.
